Missouri and Kansas weather has whipsawed area residents with a feast and then famine routine.

Rain in 2011 was so intense that it flooded parts of the states and even resulted in Interstate 29 closing for months on the way to Omaha. Someone must have prayed for the rain to end because it did in 2012, landing the states and the region in one of the worst droughts in history.

Someone must have prayed for rain in 2012 because it was delivered in 2013 in great abundance, flooding people’s homes and businesses and negatively affecting farmers and urban gardners. But someone must have prayed for the rain to stop again because it is supposed to.

Residents this week can expect temperatures in the 90s and no rain. Goodbye spring; hello summer.
